In gratitude for Scott Hardkiss
Facebook's grapevine is efficient at delivering news, both good and ill. I've had heavy doses of each this week, but the latest news that producer / DJ / radio host / mediamaker Scott Hardkiss has shuffled off this mortal coil has direct portent for me. His first single in 1993 under the moniker God Within, titled "Raincry" was a perfect melding of ambient, breakbeats and trance which drew me in to electronic music's propulsive yet blissed-out sweet spot. Because I discovered and then spun good music like God Within on the radio, I dedicated myself to being a DJ inspired by the eclecticism and mysticism of the California scene, of which Hardkiss brothers were a cornerstone. He'll be missed.
Scott Hardkiss recorded one of the best Essential Mixes I've heard. This is for your listening enjoyment this week instead of my podcast.
An all-vinyl set with full respect to the synth-pop innovators and electro heroes.

After weeks of travel near and far, I'm getting back to that happy place, those gliding faders and fading gliders, flashing blinkers and blinking flashers, control surfaces and surface controllers, turntables and tables turned. Miss it so. Music spills forth on all media, Thanks for listening.

This Saturday night the radio show gets our first guest in the studio for 2017: producer and DJ Otter, whose deep crates of bass music are a wonder to behold. With roots in the dirty south electro sounds and his eyes firmly fixed on futuristic sounds across breaks, drum'n'bass, trap and dub, we had some serious fun.
"Otter has been heavily involved in the Electronic Dance Music scene since 2001. Born and Raised in Atlanta, his musical influences range from the likes of Evol Intent, Tester, DJ Casper, Stanton Warriors, DJ Icey, DJ Fixx, Keith Mackenzie, Rick West, and Infiniti."
